When did you begin your writing career? I started entering short story contests in 2005. My first novel, The Dreaming, was published in 2010.
What’s your approach to writing? Are you a “pantser” or a planner? I’m a planner who gives myself room to go off on an unplanned tangent if that’s where the story wants to go. Some of the best scenes I’ve written were from steam of consciousness writing sprints.
What’s your working style – morning or late-night writer? In ideal conditions the first two hours of my work day are spent writing so my freshest thoughts end up on the page.
Do you work at a computer or write long-hand? Mostly with the computer, but if inspiration strikes I will type notes to myself and e-mail if I’m waiting in the car, or jot a few lines down on a random piece of paper.
What gets those words flowing, coffee or tea? Water. It’s my elixir of life.
Favorite book: Will a favorite series do? I’ve had Nora Roberts Key trilogy on my keeper shelf forever and I will take it out and sink into the awesomeness when I’m craving the mastery she showed in those books.
Favorite movie: One I can’t get enough of is Chocolat. Sigh-worthy romance and Johnny Depp!
Favorite musician: Walk Off The Earth. I am a total WOTEling.
Awards/special recognition: None yet for writing, but I’m working on it!
